Jennifer Fulwiler - Journey from Atheism

One big benefit of hearing or reading the stories of converts to Christianity is their clarity of vision. Their freshness and wonder at their discoveries as God's wisdom opens to them never fails to inspire me. I am convinced that cradle Catholic and Protestant Christians are truly handicapped in seeing God's footprints clearly when compared to these converts.

Some times their new born honesty pains us because it is so fresh that our old biases glare like scarlet letters. In the case of Jennifer she noted almost immediately the emphasis on differences we cradle Christians almost always open a discussion with. In fact, as you will see, the disagreements about God's will for us among denominations lead her to almost abandoning her search for God. Here is the video of her interview on Journey Home.

You can follow Jennifer's weekly blog essays about her Journey to Jesus at her "Conversion Journal" blog.
